10 Ways to Improve Your Day

  • Smile at everyone you meet.
  • Write down at least two things that you are grateful for today.
  • Do something physical. (Get rid of the excuses. My friend who works out regularly will be running three miles, while my aunt who has had a stroke, will be sitting in a chair doing her foot exercises. One is not more difficult than the other. They both will be pushing themselves.  What can you do?)
  • Drink plenty of water.
  • Do something nice for someone else each day. (This does not have to be time-consuming. Sometimes it does not take a whole lot of effort to improve someone else’s day.)
  • Plan something that you will look forward to doing. (An evening walk, a dinner out, a vacation.)
  • Set and accomplish a goal. (Yes, accomplishing this list definitely counts.)
  • When you become upset or frustrated, remember that whatever it is that is bothering you may not matter next year or even next month. (this is how I pick my battles. If it’s something that won’t matter in a week if I let it go… then I will)
  • Pray (When you have a problem, you’d be amazed how much better you feel after talking it over with the boss)
  • Take at least fifteen minutes out of the day to do something that you find relaxing. (Observing nature, talking a walk, meditating, taking a warm bath, listening to music….)
  • Let go of bitterness today and let life in. (This is a hard one. Try to be positive and be thankful for what you have instead of looking at others and being angry for what you don’t have)
